William Tyler - Impossible Truth

William Tyler - Impossible Truth

  • £25.00


2 x LP

'Impossible Truth' was born on tour as William was reading two books with an odd kinship while on long and lonely Midwestern drives: Barney Hoskyns' 'Hotel California' and Mike Davis' 'The Ecology of Fear'. Both center on the promise and psychosis of southern California, albeit from very different angles: Hoskyns tackles the naive and narcissistic Laurel Canyon scene of the early seventies, while renowned social scientist Davis deals with the history of the destruction of Los Angeles, both in real and imagined disasters. The synchronistic tackling of these tomes inspired Tyler to compose a story rooted in apocalyptic expectation and bittersweet nostalgia. 'Impossible Truth' will challenge your ideas of what an instrumental guitar record can and should be. Double vinyl with download.
